READ: A Bangladeshi mother has given birth to a healthy set of twins nearly a month after she delivered a premature baby boy.
Arifa Sultana, 20, gave birth to the boy late February through a “normal” delivery, but 26 days later, she was back in hospital suffering from pains in her abdomen. That’s because she was still pregnant — in her second uterus.
“She didn’t realize she was still pregnant with the twins,” Dr Sheila Poddar, a gynecologist who treated the woman, told Agence France-Presse (AFP). “Her waters broke again 26 days after the first baby was born and she rushed to us.”
Speaking with the BBC, the doctor said the twins were delivered via emergency caesarean section at a different hospital from where the woman gave birth nearly a month prior.
“When the patient came in we performed an ultrasound on her and found there were twin babies,” Poddar said. “We were very shocked and surprised. I have never observed something like this before.”
The chief government doctor in a district in southwest Bangladesh (where the mother was from) told AFP he was stunned the first hospital didn’t notice the second uterus.
“I haven’t seen any case like this in my 30-year-plus medical career,” Dr. Dilip Roy told the news service.
A double uterus, known as uterus didelphys, is a rare congenital abnormality.
“It is not very common to have two uteruses. When the uterus develops, it comes from two tubes, and those tubes fuse together,” Dr. S.N. Basu, head of obstetrics and gynecology at Max Healthcare hospital in New Delhi, explained to CNN. “For some women, the fusion does not occur, and the dividing wall does not dissolve.”
According to AFP, the new mother is doing fine with her three healthy babies. As for the new father?
“I will try my best to keep them happy,” the man said.

Cardi B, [Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and television personality] says she and her husband Offset have broken up. The 25-year-old rapper posted a 42-second video on her Instagram account early Wednesday morning announcing the split. "So, everybody been bugging me and everything. And you know, I been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now," she said. "And we're really good friends and you know we're really good business partners and you know, he's always somebody that I run to, to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other, but things just haven't been working out between us for a long time," she added. Cardi went on to say, "And it's nobody's fault. It's just like I guess we grew out of love. But we're not together anymore. I don't know it might take time to get a divorce. And I'm going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter's father and yeah." CNN has reached out to Cardi B's representatives for comment.

Rapper King Kaka surprised his fans during the launch of latest album Eastlando Royalty by bringing out his mother and long time partner to the stage during Friday night’s event at Uhuru Gardens.
A man’s love for his mother is an undying love. Kaka confessed that his mother has been his biggest fan throughout his music career.
“Kila siku nikienda studio me hucall mum namshow aniombee,” Kaka revealed of his prayerful mother’s unwavering support for him.
BEST FOR LAST
But that was not all. King Kaka left the best part for last.
Either it was Genge love or just pure heartfelt love; King Kaka brought his bae Nana on stage and requested Atemi to sing her Song Baby love as the couple danced together.
Then he pulled off another rabbit – excuse the pun – from his bag of tricks as he got down one on knee, popped up a ring and formally proposed to Nana to be his wife.
KISS OF LOVE
“Namuitanga wife na hananga pete. Will you be Mrs Ombima,” said King Kaka, to which the visibly surprised Nana said “Yes” as the crowd screamed wildly.
